Christmas day walk from the house, or should I say swim. Really needed waders.. But a nice Christmas surprise was flushing a Short-eared Owl from the small plantation between Dearham and Hawker Marsh. Also Woodcock, 30+ Lesser Redpoll no Common, Siskin, Goldcrest, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Buzzard, Fieldfare and Redwing.
Pretty quiet on the whole.
